Own a Spice and Tea Retail Store Franchise

Now is the time to:


Live your Passion.
Control your Future.
Own your Dream.


With The Spice & Tea Exchange®, store owners aren’t going to a job each day, they are building their dream and living a more flavorful life.

Who We Are

Founded in 2008, The Spice & Tea Exchange® is dedicated to the mission of: “Creating & Sharing a more flavorful life.”
Every day we bring consumers nationwide:
– The freshness and quality of a spice market
– The theater of hand-blended spices and teas
– The freedom to explore a world of flavors at the Tea Bar
We give owners a proven, turnkey operating platform, so that they can focus their time on growing relationships in their community by sharing their passion for flavor. Ownership, it’s a lifestyle that no corporate job can match.

Flavor is a Growth Market

As people re-discover the joy of cooking and entertaining, and the health benefits of tea, they are turning to specialty shops for quality ingredients. The Spice & Tea Exchange® is positioned for growth.

Every franchisee starts with a single store. In fact, many of the people who partner with The Spice & Tea Exchange® go on to open multiple locations. Today, 44% of our locations are run by multi-unit owners.


You Bring The Passion, We Provide The Experience.

The difference between a great retail experience, and a guest leaving empty handed, is the energy and knowledge of the person helping them in store.

Here’s our secret blend for success:


Our training and development programs ensure that by the time of your Grand Opening, you’re a pro in everything from product to POS, and our franchise business consultants are always available for added support so you can focus on building your dream.



People everywhere are exploring new flavors, and sharing old favorites, so there has never been a better time to open The Spice & Tea Exchange® in your hometown

Your town has great potential if it:

– Has high pedestrian traffic

– Is busy throughout the day

– Has restaurants, breweries, and boutique hotels nearby
